Hey, ya’ll! It’s Morgan here with another holiday mantel post. This time, I’m tackling a St. Patrick’s Day mantel. I love this holiday not just because I am Irish but also because I love rainbows, quotes about luck, and gold accents! So that is what you are about to see come together on my mantel & hearth.
I’m sure I’m not the first to admit that a lot of the St. Patrick’s Day decor you find at the store looks pretty gaudy. It has gotten better in the recent years but I still usually only find about one piece I like per year. Thankfully my Decocrated pieces are super versatile and can be worked into any mantel and then I fill in whatever space is left with DIY Projects! I’ll show you how below:
1. Start with the Center
Per usual, I like to start with the center of my mantel and then work my way out. I made the green and gold glitter LUCKY letters myself and they are always one of my favorite pieces. Make some yourself by following these instructions on my blog!
2. DIY Yarn Rainbows
I made these green rainbows myself as well by cutting foam wreath forms of various sizes in half and then wrapping them in yarn and gluing them together. Finish them off with yarn pom-pom clouds abs you have an easy and cute piece of St. Patty’s decor!
3. Wooden Table Clock
The wooden table clock from the Winter 2020 Box is one of the most versatile pieces I have received to date. You can make it fit into any holiday decor theme just by setting a specific date. For instance, for my St. Patrick’s Day Mantel I set the date to March 17 (st. Patrick’s Day). It works, right?
4. Wooden Table Top Frame
This piece from the Spring 2021 Box is also interchangeable. Just swap out the photo or the artwork and you can easily fit in anywhere in your home any time of the year. I printed this cute lucky shamrock off myself and cut it down to size and then popped it in the frame. Instant St. Patrick’s Day decor.
You all know I love a good garland so with this mantle is no exception. Again I made both of these myself; on one I used yarn tassels and wooden beads, on the other I used wooden and painted wooden beads along with felt shamrocks I made myself. Here is a link to my felt shamrock garland tutorial.
6. Throw Pillows
I am new to adding throw pillows to my heart. Maybe it’s because before my kids were too young and would have tossed them around within minutes, I’m not sure. But I am loving it. These two-sided throw pillow covers from the Winter 2021 Box are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day when flipped to the green side.
7. Wooden Tray & Other Accents
To add some more depth to the heart I love to add a tray near the pillows. The wooden tray from the Winter 2019 Box is my favorite tray and it’s always so classy. On the tray, I have arranged one of the gold vases from the Golden Tabletop set in the Spring 2020 Box and added a fake cream hydrangea. Next to that is the green ceramic candle holder from the Christmas 2021 Box. To tie it all together I added this adorable “How to Catch a Leprechaun” children's book.
I hope this gave you some inspiration for your St. Patrick's Day mantel decor and will help you bring some extra luck into your home this holiday! Show us your home decor and St. Patrick's Day decorations.
